Melbourne Victory Football Club is pleased to announce it has appointed Paul Trimboli as its Football Operations Manager, with the former Socceroos and South Melbourne star opting for a return home to Victoria after a one-year term with Brisbane Roar.

Trimboli joins the club having enjoyed success with the Queenslanders, where he held a similar position last season, as Brisbane secured their second Championship in as many years.

Now reunited with former Roar coach Ange Postecoglou at Melbourne Victory, Trimboli said he was excited by the prospect of a new challenge, “While I enjoyed my time with Brisbane Roar and made many great friends, Melbourne was always home, so when this opportunity presented itself, I felt that it was the right one for me.

“Melbourne Victory-s fans are quite remarkable and they crave success, so it-s a great challenge and one that I-m extremely excited about.

“Ange and I have known one another for a very long time, so to be able to continue working alongside him - albeit at a different club - is a fantastic result for me,” Trimboli added.

Having only been at the club for two months, Postecoglou has wasted no time building his back room team and Trimboli-s addition was seen as a vital component of his plans, “We-re trying to build a new football department structure at the club and having someone of Paul-s capabilities behind the scenes was extremely important to me,” Postecoglou said.

“Not only was Paul a highly respected player, but the wide ranging experience he-s acquired since retiring has been very impressive too and I saw the benefits of his skills set first-hand at Brisbane Roar.

Trimboli commences with the club on Monday, July 2.
